KT is meh in this game, IF it got buffed then maybe if they buffed the mantlet from 178 to 280-300, and the Upper plate to 250 effective.Also give it back the engine it used to have 870 HP , now it has 700 hp, LFP was also nerfed from 120 mm to 100 mm. Improve the turret roof by 2 mm So it can't be over matched by Soviet 122 mm guns. Undo the nerfs done to it in 8.8, this tank has been power crept into near uselessness with all the other tanks getting buffed and the Tier 8 prems that have come out in the last 3 years.

 

Cons:

- Upper glacis can bounce only Tier 8 guns reliably; any gun with about 250mm pen can go right through it.

- Huge yet inadequately armored hull except for the upper glacis; lower glacis is very weak, and the unimproved side armor allows only auto-bounces. Vulnerable to flanking.

- Underarmored turret; stock turret holds only against tier V guns; top turret except for the mantlet is only reliable against lower tiers either. Roof can also be overmatched.

- High profile and poor camo values.

- Engine is very under powered for the tank's weight, resulting in general low mobility.

- Effectiveness is eclipsed by newer Tier 8 heavy tanks.

- DPM is mediocre at average ~1900 (According to in-game stats)
